COMMERCIAL:

  • Upfront Notice: BICA sends a Courtesy Notice.
  • Follow-up Notice: There is no statutory follow-up notice.

RESIDENTIAL:

  • Upfront Notice:
    • Warning Statement (Pre-existing construction): In order to have lien rights, this statement must be sent to the Owner.  It is usually done by the General Contractor but if not given, the claimant must do so; therefore BICA uses this as its standard upfront notice.
      • Lien Rights only apply to amounts not yet paid to the Contractor as of the date this Warning Statement is received.
      • Therefore, it should be sent as soon as possible.
      • This only applies to pre-existing construction.
    • Notice of Intent to Perform (New construction):
      • This notice is optional.
      • On new residential construction, to protect your lien rights if the property is sold before you are paid, it is required to be filed with the clerk of the district court.
      • A copy of this notice is also sent to the Owner and Contractor as a courtesy notice.
      • This notice expires after 18 months.
      • You may select this as your upfront notice on the BICA member portal or by directly emailing BICA about the job.
  • Follow-up Notice:
    • If you filed the Notice of Intent to Perform on New Residential Property, you are required to file a Release of Notice of Intent to Perform when you are fully paid.
      • This notice is available on the BICA member portal.
